    Favourite dumbbell lifts?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I've a pair of 35 pound dumbbells I throw around from time to time, was wondering what everyone's favourite mid to heavy weight dumbell moves are? Mine are getting stale.

    Lunges! There is a great lunge that I call the 3-pump lunge and it will make you feel the burn! Do a walking lunge down a hallway and each time you switch feet, do 3 split squats (pulse up and down). Awesome leg workout!

    Bent-press, it's kinda unorthodox for today's standards but I feel like I can lift more weight with it than a regular standing press.

    i am not sure if they are heavier enough for you, but i enjoy doing farmers walks with dumbbells!

    plus you could always do a lot of kettlebell type workouts with dumbbells too!!

    Bicep curl transitioning to an Arnold Press then slowly squat.
